FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of sending files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to see any other content in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous Internet sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
